10th Annual Meeting of International Organisations


Paris, 28-29 November 2023

Today, International Organisations are fighting planetary emergencies, and multilateralism is under stress. High-level political decisions are subject to the vulnerabilities of nationalism, protectionism and war. This reinforces the need for international co-operation aimed at delivering to people access to goods and services, as well as ensuring the health and safety of plants, animals and ultimately citizens worldwide.

International instruments offer a solid backbone for the global landscape. This IO Partnership’s legacy to date is to offer all IOs a common looking glass to identify strengths and weaknesses of international rules and standards. At this anniversary event, governments and IO Partners have the opportunity to define together their shared priorities for international instruments to be ever more effective in ensuring solutions to global challenges.
